Reply To: Anyone thought about our burials?

For those considering cremation please research Aquamation. It is a large tub of warm water with various non toxic chemicals that dissolve the flesh leaving only the bones. The water contains nutrients that you can use in your own garden. The bones are crushed and returned as “Ashes” to the family. The cost here was comparable to cremation but far less harmful to the environment. We opted for this process for my late spouse in 2020.

As far as the “funeral” was concerned there wasn’t any but given this was the pandemic we opted for a Zoom “Life Celebration” instead. We played our favorite music, talked about the fun times together and a good friend sang a requiem. It felt like the right thing to do and neither my daughter nor I have any regrets. Some of the “ashes” were placed under tree roots and some were used to make jewelry. I have a pair of earrings and a dragonfly pendant.

Something similar for myself but I doubt that there will be anywhere near the same number of people who would attend.

Kind regards, Rowena 👩‍🦳

PS Donating organs given the cancer and chemo wasn’t an option during the pandemic but if there is anything left of my body that is still functional they are welcome because I have no further use for it at that stage. 😉
